Chiropractic Licensing, Application Requirements, and Unlicensed Practice Outcomes

 Posted on September 20,2017 in Medical License Defense

Illinois professional license lawsBecoming a chiropractor takes much time and effort, with a lot of time focused on different classes and hands-on learning. Preparing for the licensing exam and actually taking the exam requires much time as well. When becoming a chiropractor, there are a lot of facts that each applicant needs to know before he or she can start practicing.

Requirements for Chiropractic License

In order to become a successful chiropractor, the applicant must have successfully taken every step needed to complete all of the requirements for his or her chiropractic license.

The applicant must pay $700 in non-refundable application fees, sent to the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation.

The chiropractor license term is three years, and the completed chiropractor license application must include the following:

  • Fully completed application;
  • Proof of graduation and official transcript from an accredited chiropractic school;
  • Official transcript of pre-requisite courses from all colleges enrolled;
  • Copy of marriage license, if applicable;
  • Professional and internship history;
  • Proof of completion of National Boards Part I, II, III and IV; and
  • Certification of Licensure, if applicable.

Processing time of the chiropractor license application typically takes between six and nine weeks after all documents have been received.

Consequences of Practicing without a Chiropractic License

If the applicant for his or her chiropractic license fails the examination five times, then the applicant is ineligible for the chiropractic license until he or she submits to further professional study at an accredited institution.

If anyone practices or attempts to practice the art of chiropractic without a license will face a $10,000 civil penalty for each offense. The civil penalty must be paid in full within 60 days after the effective date of the order.
